Might Friday Night Lights have found its next Tim Riggins?

Following the departures of series regulars Zach Gilford, Taylor Kitsch and Jesse Plemmons, the drama has added Grey Damon to its fifth season cast.

The actor - who has appeared on episodes of 90210 and Greek - will portray Hastings Ruckle, an East Dillon basketball player who joins the Lions as a wide receiver.

In casting for the role, producers sought a “super, super hot guy who must be over 6 feet tall with a strong athletic build," as the characters possesses a “dark, hippie, party-guy vibe. Look for Hastings to be one of the more popular kids at school.

Friday Night Lights debuts its fourth season on NBC on May 7.
